Hi All:

I realize it is probably pure speculation at this point but which in ear headphones do you think will work better with the iphone4s both for listening to music and for using the mic to make and receive calls? Also, does anyone know if either one will work with Siri?

In addition, I plan on using the headphones with my ipad2

The two alternatives are:

Bowers & Wilkins C5 In-Ear Headphones or;
Bose MIE2i mobile headset

Yes, I realize the Bowers & Wilkins is almost the price of an Iphone 4S 16 Gb model.

Yeah, it's probably all speculation at this point. And the "which is better" question is always such a subjective topic.

I have no reason to believe that any headphones that you use with the current iPhones and iPads and iPods would be compatible.

I have a pair of Etymotics that I love and have a built in microhphone. I don't plan on replacing them.
